I looked through the ideas here, but didn`t find a similar request - although I`m sure I read about it somewhere. There is one similar idea (from berkley) regarding profiles for track recording, but that`s not exactly what I`m thinking about...
I have different usage types for Locus, other users probably also have. For me, there are these two:
- Outdoor activity (hiking, biking, geocaching)
- Car (mainly navigation)
For these usage types, I use different settings for these options:
- map source
- map orientation (portrait vs. landscape)
- map rotation
- map auto zoom
There are probably other setting which might change according to the usage type, like:
- navigation source, navigation type (quickest, shortest, bike, ...)
- screen layout (e.g. quick access buttons)
- track recording (see berkleys idea)
Right now, I switch all these settings manually when switching from one usage type to another. Saving different sets of settings in different profiles should be easier...
I`d like to have a profile manager, which allows to quickly switch between different profiles, switching a whole bunch of settings just with one action.
A profile manager should be able to:
- save current settings to a new profile, update an existing profile with the current settings
- copy/rename/delete profiles
- activate a profile
Additionally, I`m dreaming of an automatic profile switch, like (for example):
- use "profile A" as default
- when a special bluetooth device is connected (e.g. car audio system or bluetooth gpsr), switch to "profile B", when the device is disconnected, switch back to the default profile...
